Playoff Pool & Bracket Results, Round 2

I suppose I still have to show the results from the second round of the NHL Playoff pool, even though my picks didn’t register and I only got points from the few players I picked in the first round whose teams actually made it through to the second. BAH HUMBUG even though it was my fault (I forgot to answer the tie-breaker and didn’t spot that my player picks hadn’t gone through. Mind you, I still almost beat ModScientist).

Pool Round 2

ScientistMother was the clear winner in Round 2, moving up from 7th place to take a commanding lead over Gerty. Chall did well too, making up some ground on Gerty and third-placed Beth. There’s just a single point separating Ricardipus and Bob, who are under pressure from Lava and Mod in 7th and 8th place, respectively. But I will be BACK, BABY – my combined Round 3 & 4 picks are in, and I’m hoping that the LA Kings will go all the way, which would make it three years in a row that the Canucks are eliminated by the eventual winners. Which is better than nothing.

Bracket Round 2

ScientistMother also kicked serious ass in the bracket, taking first place from last round’s dual winner Gerty. Cowy and Lava also managed to sneak ahead of Gerty, while ModScientist had a rougher time of it but held on to fifth place. I did much better than last time, rising from last place to sixth, while Beth and JasonDoc struggled and Chall, Rotten and IndyR appeared not to make any picks. I’d usually mock them, but not this time considering my fortunes in the pool…

OK, now GO KINGS! (Or don’t. I actually don’t care all that much. When do the Olympics start?)

  1. I may have kicked ass last round but I forgot to make picks in both pools this round!

    That was not my best round, but things are looking up for me in Round 3 so far! ๐Ÿ™‚

    you know, I’m happy as a clam I picked things Friday BEFORE the Rangers Sat game… since I forgot the pool afterwards ๐Ÿ™ therefore I have one left empty space as well as both Rangers and Pho and kings… ah well.. better than forgetting ALL things picky?!

    I’m going for Kings, thinking it would be fun if Rangers took it – beating the odds of having playing and won 7 games in round 1 and 2 since it is 0-38 of the teams going to the SC final so far….. Kings however are trying to beat their record too, with being the 8th seed …. intersting anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰

    that Wolrd cup hockey looks interesting too though… rather than the Olympic games right now ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Yeah, I missed the Round 2 deadline, too. Now the only way I can make any noise is if both Phoenix and New Jersey go all the way… which is seeming unlikely on both counts at the moment.

    Ah well, can’t complain. Well, actually, I can, and probably will. But you know what I mean.

  5. People having no / reduced numbers of picks for the third and fourth round is good for me! Although there do seem to be lots of people with very similar picks…

    Do I win the commenting award?

    Mock away, IndyR is my brother. And a Canucks HATER! And continue to mock me too, yeah yeah you didn’t make picks and still almost beat me. My Skillz died with the Canucks season ๐Ÿ™

  8. Modscientist says:

    Also, cowy is my 9 year old nephew and JasonDoc is his dad. Mock them too while you’re at it. Especially Jason, he is a Flames fan (barf)

  9. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    OK then:


    IndyR, cowy, and JasonDoc: YOU SUCK! And so do the Flames!
